Temporary profile picture on Facebook

Facebook Temporary Profile Picture

Facebook has been marking great events for profile pictures with special, temporary filters. Now it has turned a new feature that allows you upload temporary profile pictures. In that,you can mark important life events. For now, the temporary profile pictures can be uploaded only from the mobile and not from the web. We can set the profile picture temporarily for an hour, a day, a week or a custom period of time. Below we have given the procedure to set up the  profile picture.

Confirm whether you have updated the latest version of Facebook. If yes, then go to the profile picture to update it. And then a small clock icon appears in the picture. Click on it and choose when should expire.




When you visit your profile, you can see when the picture will expire. Once it expires, it returns to the previous photo you had set as your profile picture.

This feature is good because the profile pictures on Facebook have been public for a while now. Say you were to upload a sonogram or a picture of your degree to share with friends and family. You will not want to keep it public for too long as it’s sensitive information. In that sense, the feature is awesome since it removes the information automatically.
Temporary profile pictures haven’t been rolled out for Pages even though they could probably benefit from the feature more, if not equally. Pages could use it as a means to advertise time limited promotions they have running but Facebook likely prefers that people buy ads to do that instead.
